David Backes netted his 4th goal of the season Tuesday night against the St. Louis Blues, his former club after signing with the Bruins to a 5 year, $30 million dollar deal this past offseason. Not only it is his 4th goal, but this goal means that David Backes has scored at least one goal against every single team in the National Hockey League. On top of that, Torey Krug earned career assist #100.
Yet, the biggest reason for this goal, is the the fact that it is goal number 20,000 for the Boston Bruins franchise. This makes Boston the second team in National Hockey League history to hit the milestone.
